Island Dream

Album: After The Party (2004)

Songfacts®:

  • Island, my magical island
    You will see me each day of my life

    This mystical South Sea paradise may see Geoff Long, but neither he nor his co-writer Leigh Stirling will see the island, because they are both blind, as are all the musicians on After The Party.

    This song has a laid-back feel with some nice vocal overdubbing. Geoff Long may well be Sydenham's answer to Stevie Wonder, but alas not every talented musician finds fame and fortune. >>
